Preview CSS

The preview CSS does not seem to be applying to my preview pane. Changing among the three provided CSS files does not change the preview, even if I restart the app, and if I add my own I'm able to select it, but again the appearance does not change.

If I check Include preview CSS when exporting to HTML, I get this in the exported HTML file:

<style type="text/css">(null)</style>

The alignment is odd, as well; there is a lot of whitespace before the opening heading.

    Searching didn't find it, but browsing turned up Preview CSS not rendered until it's explicitly selected in View menu, and this appears to be exactly the same as what I described above. Closing.

    Thanks -- found the bug. When fixing something else, I accidentally
    told it to apply the default CSS to a webview before it was created.

    Instead you will have to select a CSS file from the menu bar for the
    window after it is open.

    I'm working on a major update to Composer and this problem doesn't exist
    there. Depending on timing, might have to push out a bug fix release
    before then.

    Thanks again,
